In recent years, auto safety has taken a major jump from seatbelts and airbags. Safety technology has stepped up to become one of the main components of the new vehicle experience. But how do you determine which make of car has the best safety features for life in the Yukon? A closer look at Toyota Safety Sense -- Toyota's suite of smart safety systems -- will fill you in on how our lineup is making roads safer (even in the wild North.)
Modern-day safety technology has advanced to the point where it now acts as a backup or co-pilot, ready to step in when the unexpected occurs. While proper driving techniques and alertness on the road are required by all drivers, smart systems can lower the risk of collisions by sensing where the vehicle is and where all surrounding objects are located, as well. The newest version of our driver assistance technology, Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, does just that. Learn more about how each feature works to keep your family protected.
As the name suggests, this system prepares your vehicle for an imminent crash -- or avoids the collision altogether. Whether the object that has crossed your path is animal, vehicle or bicycle, TSS will sense it and kick into action to prevent disaster.
Never let a distraction veer you out of your lane again. The LDA feature keeps you safe by sensing where the road lines are ahead of you and keeping you inside of them.
Blinding oncoming traffic isn’t safe for anyone. With AHB, you won’t have to remember to switch your high beams off every time a vehicle drives passed because your Toyota does it for you.
This feature allows you to stay centred in your lane even when traveling at higher speeds while in cruise control. To make it work, all you need to do is keep your hand on the wheel.
Easily move with the flow of traffic without constantly worrying about plowing into the car in front of you when you’ve got DRCC on your side. This technology works at low and high speeds to match your movements with the vehicle in front of you from a safe distance.
